Tabbed by: Macheeoo
Email: macheeoo@yahoo.com

Tuning: Standard

This is how John plays it. He uses all barred chords but you might be able
to play it capo 3 if you can transpose. 

Cm   Eb  F  x2

Cm                                Eb                F                Cm
Pulled off the highway in Missouri and low our hearts were heavy laid
                                  Eb                   F 
Made for the chapel with some spray paint for all the things we'd held in

          F                 Cm
Lord lift up these lifeless bones
         F                  Cm              F               G
Light cascading through the windows all the rainbow's heavy tones

        Cm                   G#
He has fixed his sign in the sky
        Cm                G              Cm
He has raised me from the pit and set me high

Cm                      Eb             F                   Cm               
Left that place in ruin, drunk on the Spirit and high on fumes
                                  Eb              F 
Checked into a Red Roof in stayed up for several hours and then slept like

               F              Cm
In the burning fuselage of my days
       F       Cm      F               G                      
Let my mouth        be ever fresh with praise

        Cm                   G#
He has fixed his sign in the sky
        Cm                G              Cm
He has raised me from the pit and set me high

F            Cm
Each morning new
F             Cm
Each day shot through
F                                   Cm     G#
With all the sharps small shards of shrapnel 
Cm                           G
that seem to burst of me and you

Cm                               Eb                 F                   Cm
Head down towards kansas We will get there when we get there don't you worry
                             Eb           F 
Feel bad about the things we do along the way 
But not really that bad

     F                Cm
We inhaled the frozen air
      F          Cm            F          G
Lord send me a mechanic if I'm not beyond repair

        Cm                   G#
He has fixed his sign in the sky
        Cm                G              Cm
He has raised me from the pit and set me high

Cm   G#  A#   X3
Cm  G  Cm

Use the controls on the left to push it up to +9, then capo 3.

^ haha yep, that's how I play it as well -- although, if I may offer a suggestion... When you transpose a tab, if you go down (rather than up) it may be easier. To play this song capo 3, go down 3. If you wanted to play a song on capo 5, just go down 5.

Good luck and happy playing!

oh yeah! good point. +9 is actually the same as -3.
